I'm collecting honey for my first time. I put a strainer lined with cheese cloth on top of a 5 gallon pail. Poured the broken up honey/comb in. I then rested a towel over the top as it strained. Bucket is filled now about half way with honey, straining is just about done.I am ordering some bottles which will come later this upcoming week BUT am concerned about:1) the honey crystallizing if exposed to air (while it sits being strained)? Should I put the bucket lid on?? Will all the air space in the bucket be bad for it too, despite the lid? Ideally I'd like to store it in the bucket and just fill bottles as I go...as I sell or gift them. Is this going to increase crystallization issues? I just can't find anywhere searching online whether to cover while straining, or how long you can have honey uncovered.2) I know I also need to give the honey time to release air bubbles - how long? And does it need a cloth lid should I just put a tight lid on during this whole process?3) will storing the honey in the bucket be sufficient - only half the bucket is full (lots of air space in it) and the bucket lid is not air tight (and I'd be dipping into it once in awhile). Or should I be getting it into any jars and bottles I can scrounge up? Does it matter for crystallization basically between these two methods?4) IF the honey does crystallize and I want it liquid again .. I know how to warm it, but how long does it last before 're-crystallizing' again?? (I tried googling this to no avail).I know this all makes me sound terrified of the crystals which I'm not haha...I am just trying to understand the process. Thanks for any help!!
